Bangkok’s oldest Chinese community, make a daytime sightseeing to Bangkok’s Chinatown and discover the local market, gold trade and pay a visit to one of the Chinese temples. Chinatown or locally referred to as ‘Yaowarat’ at night is certainly one of the world’s most famous street food destination. Simply order a few bottles of beers, sit back and enjoy outstanding seafood, Thai-Chinese specialities and just about any other dish from all regions of Thailand.
Chinatown is in the Samphatawong district, approximately 15 minutes by taxi from Novotel Bangkok Silom Road. Alternatively, guests of Novotel Silom can take the MRT underground from Silom Station to Hua Lamphong Station then take a short walk to Yaowarat Street.
Alternatively, with the new update on MRT Blue Line extension in July 2019, now you can visit here easily by starting at the MRT Silom station as well and then get off at the new MRT Wat Mangkon station directly. What a convenient way to travel to this street food paradise in Bangkok!
